Why is the instrumental used here?

Instrumental can be used for roles or professions, especially if they're temporary.

would "Are those students girls?" be translated to Czech differently?

I expect that it would; possibly, for example, as "Jsou ti studenti dívky?"

That is indeed a possible sentence, if we have no specific information about them.
